IME call for people across the UK to help tackle youth unemployment by becoming online career mentors

Friday 16 May, 2014
Top online training provider Inspire, Motivate & Engage (www.inspiremotivateandengage.com) is calling for people across the UK to help their community this National Give & Gain Day by becoming an online career mentor and help tackle youth unemployment.

This Friday 16 May is Give & Gain Day the chance to give something back to the community through employee volunteering. Since the day started in 2008, the number of UK volunteers has increased by 300%, and there are all manner of opportunities out there for people to get involved in. However, many people still think they are unable to volunteer due to demanding work schedules and busy lifestyles. This is why joining the IME online mentoring scheme is the ideal solution for busy people who are keen to give something back, whilst also building their own skills and experience, as it only requires a time commitment of one hour per week.

Claire Atkinson, founder and CEO of Inspire, Motivate & Engage (IME) explains: “Many people want to give something back to the community, but lack the precious time needed to join conventional employee volunteering schemes, which can mean days out of the office. Our online mentoring scheme is the perfect solution. We partner with businesses across the country and match employees up with suitable mentees – young people that are trying to make that first step onto the career ladder and could do with some advice and guidance from professionals already in the field.”

Mentors can come from all walks of life, whether they be managers, HR professionals, administrators or executives, everyone has valuable skills and experience which could be passed on to benefit others. And the mentor will automatically have access to training of their own too.

Claire continues: “The mentoring scheme which we run at IME is unlike others because both the mentor and the mentee stand to gain significantly. Each party gets access to their own personal online mentoring portal, and each mentor receives access to a level 4 accredited Management & Leadership course as they mentor imbedded into their mentoring experience. This not only helps the participant to become a better mentor but also a better manager, learning how to coach, influence ethically and much more. We provide a full package of support from the start to ensure that the partnership runs smoothly, and the programme is tailor made to fit in around busy lifestyles.”

Mentor meetings can take place face-to-face, or online through tools such as Skype, so the scheme is 100% flexible around your day-to-day work. The scheme is ideal for people who are looking to boost their management skills, as well as to give something back through directly tackling youth unemployment. As one mentor put it: “I have enjoyed seeing my mentee develop and grow in confidence, this has been a really fulfilling experience.”

So far IME have partnered with organisations such as Legal & General, Milkround and Skandia, and they are looking for more businesses across the country to join the scheme and help make a lasting difference to a young person’s life and career.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
